Shaken and Stirred: A Pilot Project in Arts and Special Education
Ponder, Carol; Kissinger, Lori
Teaching Artist Journal, v7 n1 p40-46 Jan 2009
In this article, the authors describe VSA arts Tennessee's pilot arts in education project and the many good questions that have arisen from it. From VSA's inception in 2002, Lori Kissinger, Executive Director of VSA Tennessee, planned to find a way to partner with the Tennessee Department of Education based on other state models. VSA arts International, founded in 1974 by Jean Kennedy Smith with a focus on arts education for children with disabilities, is funded by the U.S. Department of Education. In its first four years, VSA arts Tennessee offered a variety of educational programs including artist residencies in schools, festivals, camps, workshops, and professional development for teachers. Through this work, the organization built a record of successful arts education programming while making connections in the field.
